We visited Parrain’s for dinner last week while in Baton Rouge for a business trip. The restaurant was a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and very attentive. I ordered The Delacroix and it was cooked to perfection. We will definitely revisit Parrain’s.

Ordered the fried shrimp platter and it came with an abundance of shrimp. With the hush puppies, fries, and shrimp I could not finish off my plate, it was all just too much. The taste was on point, it was not bland and the shrimp...More
